Base install sarge - kernel compile?


Is the base install from the net install cd of sarge enough for me to recompile my kernel?

Can I just use a kernel from kernel.org and recompile the normal way or do I have to apt-get a special debian kernel?

I'm very sure you will have to get the 'gcc' compiler package. but are you trying to custom compile or use apt-get to upgrade your kernel? I used the net installer and got 2.4.xx and apt-get'ed up to 2.6.7 easily.

IF you do:
Code:
apt-get -t unstable install kernel-source-2.6.7
You will get a compressed archive of the kernel source in /usr/src. The Debian source has some patches applied, so it is not exactly the same as the one from www.kernel.org.

The base Debian install doesn't have everything you need to compile. When you run the above command some of the required dependencies will be installed automatically with apt-get. Also look for "recommended" and "suggested" packages when running the above command. You will probably need to add kernel-package to use "make-kpkg" and some ncurses packages if you want to use "make menuconfig".

You can easily use the kernel.org sources and you will probably need a few other packages other that the base install here a guide to compiling the Debian way.
